    37 You may want every user on the system to be able to use tex packages without downloading them seperatedly or just save the time searching the same packages multiple times. The solution is to extend the tex search path. I did that for all users on my system by adding following line to the bash configuration file /etc/bash.bashrc.
    38 {{{
    39 export TEXINPUTS=".:/usr/local/share/latex//:"
    40 }}}
    41 The doubled slash at the end of the path causes tex to recursively check this directory for searched packages.

I described the way to do this in our [http://blog.falaba.de/index.php?/archives/19-Latex-Suchpfad-erweitern.html blog], but I want to translate this for you here.

    44 Other shells may require other commands. Use appropriate permissions for that folder like owner root may write, everyone else just read.
     39The solution is to create a directory like {{{/usr/local/share/texmf/latex/}}} is one. You can also share bitex styles in a related directory like {{{/usr/local/share/texmf/bibtex/bst/}}}. I create a subdirectory for each latex package I install and then run {{{texhash /usr/local/share/texmf/}}} as a superuser.

     41Afterwards you have to set the adequate rights for these directories and files.

     43You are done.
